Roseboro's Commitment Biggest of 2015 Class So Far

While the Pack suffered a disappointing loss to Boston College, they received great news just before kickoff. Perhaps the top target of the 2015 class committed to NC State in front of fans and fellow recruits on the field.

While today was disappointing on the field for Dave Doeren, he pulled off by far his biggest recruiting win of the #Pack15 class. Longtime top target Darian Roseboro pulled the trigger for the Wolfpack on Saturday before the game, fulfilling the promises many had made leading up to the game. Roseboro is currently the top rated player in the state of North Carolina by and the number six defensive tackle (even though he expects to play defensive end in college).

The brief Michigan commitment ended that status after his official visit to NCSU two weeks ago for the Florida State game, so the writing was on the wall for Roseboro to become a member of the Red and White. This pickup means Doeren has landed the top defensive player in the state for the second year in a row (defensive end Kentavius Street last season) and should give NC State a stout defensive line in the future.

Checking in at 6’4" 283 lbs, Roseboro has the combination of size and speed that earned his high four star rating. It has been a big week for the big defensive end, as he was named to the North Carolina squad for the annual Shrine Bowl as well.

While landing a player of Roseboro’s stature is a massive achievement in and of itself, the hope is that his addition will get the ball rolling for the remaining big targets in the class. The weekend is not over, and the Wolfpack already added another commitment from junior college offensive lineman Daris Workman. There could be more coming soon, with several big-name visitors still on campus such as Nyheim Hines and Mike Hughes. Emanuel McGirt and Johnny Frasier are two more top targets for the staff that Roseboro may influence.

Fellow commit Freddie Phillips, who has been one of the Pack's best recruiting commitments, was among the first to break the news.
